Eating in Shikoku can be surprisingly cosmopolitan experience. Matsuyama offers the widest variety of cuisines, everything from French to Indian. Takamatsu is another foodie haven, with plenty of small bistros, cafés, and izakaya pubs in and around the city's shopping arcades. In Kochi and Tokushima there are fewer foreign restaurants, but plenty of small Japanese eateries serving up local specialties.
In the main cities you can find restaurants open until the early hours of the morning, but in Shikoku's smaller towns expect most places to close by 8 pm.
